Central and Non-central HBT from AGS to RHIC

We review the status of particle interferometry in ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions. The theoretical focus is on the model-independent space-time interpretation of HBT radius parameters

Entropy and Phase Space Density at RHIC

Spectra and correlations from RHIC are analyzed to determine the phase space density and total entropy. The phase space density for pions is higher and the entropy is thus lower than some



Centrality dependence of charged particle multiplicity in Au-Au collisions at square root of (s)NN = 130 GeV.

The results, analyzed as a function of centrality, show a steady rise of the particle density per participating nucleon with centrality.

Pion Interferometry of square root of (s(NN)) =130 GeV Au + Au collisions at RHIC.

Two-pion correlation functions in Au+Au collisions at square root of [s(NN)] = 130 GeV have been measured by the STAR (solenoidal tracker at RHIC) detector and the Hanbury Brown-Twiss parameters display a weak energy dependence over a broad range in square root.

Pion interferometry at RHIC: porobing a thermalized quark-gluon plasma?

We calculate the Gaussian radius parameters of the pion-emitting source in high-energy heavy-ion collisions, assuming a first-order phase transition from a thermalized quark-gluon plasma (QGP) to a

Pion Interferometry for Exploding Sources

A formula for the two-pion correlation function is derived for an arbitrary chaotic source when the emission spectrum from each point in space-time is known. The experimental fact that pions with

It is shown that these corrections can be important, reducing the apparent source size by 20% and coherence effects are shown to significantly reduce the coherence parameters for small sources.

Transverse Mass Dependence of Two-Pion Correlations in Au+Au Collisions at {radical}s

Two-pion correlations in roots(NN) = 130 GeV Au+Au collisions at RHIC have been measured over a broad range of pair transverse momentum k(T) by the PHENIX experiment at RHIC. The k(T) dependent
